All week I am going to be blogging here from Bigstuf Camp…the most amazing place you can bring a group of high school students for a week! I just want to let you in on what is happening by posting three video updates over the next three days so you can experience what is happening in the lives of our students. What you may see on the video is the incredible experience our students are having! What you will not see are the relational connections happening in small groups. You will also not see what God is doing in the hearts of our students. I can’t explain it but there is a sense in my heart that God is going to do some next level things in the hearts of our students this week. We are going to be asking each other to slow down and THINK this week in every worship session, quite time on the beach, and all the small group times. Life is so busy that it pushes us to not THINK about why we are here, who we are, where are we headed? The less we THINK the further we move away from intentionally allowing Jesus to shape our lives! Last night Jared Herd, one of our our speakers, focused on this verse, check it out…

2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 (NLT)

That verse lets us know that transformation is a product of changing the way we THINK not embracing guilt over our past failures. If we expect high school students to move in a different direction…to move toward the heart of God…to be come more like Christ…then we better help them THINK DIFFERENTLY. What could God do in our lives as we strive to think different? Pray for us the entire week and check in for video updates!
